    I am coming to apple from Android for the first time...ever. With that in mind I though I’d try everything so I got the iPhone, AirPods, and this watch. Comparing the whole experience and functionality to Android I can tell you that Apple just makes the experience so much better. As you use the watch you’ll come across things that demonstrate all the extra steps Apple took to make the watch work for each person. The watch pairs quickly with my phone and I can use it to control songs and volume for my AirPods. The way apps from the iPhone interact with Apple Watch is truly amazing and more complete than anything my android phone and watch could do. One app I have is for weather radar and my watch can display a live radar sweep itself. That’s just cool. Apps that have watch capability will automatically add that part of the app to the watch if you want, super easy. Phone calls are super clear and realizable as well when using the watch. Heart rate monitoring is awesome and automatically tracks your heartbeat during the day. This data is then graphed for you on the watch and your iPhone. The watch loads apps without any delay and hasn’t slowed at all since purchase. The battery easily lasts all day even when mixing in a full hour workout and playing with the watch all day. Most nights I’ll have 40 percent or more battery left. The watch is comfortable to wear all day. The display is incredibly bright and easily visible in direct sunlight. The aluminum feels quite solid and I have no concerns about damaging it. In the end this is a great accessory for an IPhone. It is especially useful if you have AirPods and/or workout regularly as the heath tracking functionality is amazing. It will even give you reminders throughout the day to keep up with your exercise and movement goals to ensure you’re on track. Just get the watch. It’s worth it!

    A huge upgrade from the first gen Apple Watch!

    Bottom Line: The Apple Watch Series 4 showcases a series of refinements to the features that made the Apple Watch the leader of the smartwatch category. Pros: sleeker design, larger display, faster and more responsive, improved heart and motion sensors, compatible with existing bands Cons: still an iPhone accessory, price Review: Fans of the Apple Watch won’t he disappointed with the Series 4. Although the changes to the case design seem minor, they have a big impact on the experience. Series 4, compared the previous design, looks and feels less like a “smartwatch” and more just like a “watch.” The bigger screen is fantastic, especially compared to my S0. I love the new watch faces, and the extra screen size helps when typing directly on the screen. For instance, when entering my passcode, I’m less likely to hit the wrong numbers, since the button sizes are closer to those of my fingertips. There are several under-the hood improvements as well. For me, the upgraded processor is huge, since it (re)enables a lot of features that no longer ran well on the S0, including Siri and Music. The heart sensor is also much better at keeping track of your heart rate, which is helpful during activities like bike riding. Although the Series 4 is a nice improvement over previous generations, the Apple Watch is still very much an iPhone accessory. It’s appeal will primarily be those who are upgrading from earlier models and, perhaps, someone who is heavily considering making the jump into wearables that is already invested in Apple’s ecosystem.

    Awesome investment. I was between a rock and a hard place when the Series 4 was announced because I wanted the cellular but was told if my device is usually around me not to bother with the additional expense. It was great advice. I can still pick up calls if my phone is about 45 feet away. The sound quality is clear and pretty loud for a watch. I love the fact it automatically picks up when I start running and tracks my workout along with my HR. One con is it will not sync your “steps” from your phone to your watch for the day. (Like in case you kept your phone in your pocket THEN put on the watch.) It does track HR at various points throughout the day and motivates you to keep active by setting goals at the beginning/end of a week. The txt feature is nice, I’d like a modified keyboard just because it would probably make replying to txt faster. I do suggest updating your phone device PRIOR to opening your watch from the packaging because it does become a bit of a delay if you have to wait for it which takes some of the fun out from the initial experience. I got the sport band that came with my watch and I haven’t replaced it yet. I like how sleek the band is and how the rubber isn’t stiff unto the skin and it is smooth. It makes for an easier transition for those who haven’t worn watches before. I wish the bumpers/cases/screen protectors would have been more readily available for purchase when the preorders were delivered just because I find myself having to wait for them to be released with is a little nerve wracking (Let’s be honest, it’s an expensive device, I want it protected!) All in all, I really enjoy my watch and I use it daily since I’ve gotten it. It was completely worth the wait and worth the trading off of getting the S3-Cellular and just getting the S4-GPS.

    Apple Watch Series 4, GPS version, 44 MM

    Fantastic Watch!!! This is my 3rd Apple Watch, and I am truly impressed of the vast improvements made over the various series offered by Apple. When the series 3 offered cellular, I decided to upgrade and try it out. While it was a novel idea, I found it really was not as useful as I thought it would be. In fact, there was only one time where I did not have my iPhone with me when I went to the local grocery store. Also, I had difficulty answering my watch if I was in my home. Calls would fail or I could not even answer calls on my watch. Then, there was the $10.00/month fee just for having cellular shrive on the watch, amounting to over $120.00/year, plus fees. Suffice to say, when I heard about the series 4 coming out I decided I would upgrade to it which I did a few weeks ago, canceling my cellular plan, with one exception. I only purchased the GPS version!!! Let's just say I am very pleased with its performance so far. The watch speaker volume is much better!!! I can actually answer and make phone calls without incurring any problems as I did with the series 3 cellular version. The ECG feature, fall protection feature, Siri, etc are awesome. Hands down, I highly recommend the series 4 GPS version!!

    I wish I could give a good comparison between this smart watch and others out there, but I can say that this thing is wonderful. I love wearing a watch and have been wanting an AW for a long time. After the updated styling and new screen, I had to get it. I am not a power user so I can't comment on all the crazy functionality and cool apps and what the apps do. The things AW does well that I love are the simple things: text messaging, heart rate and ECG, and listening to voice calls and music through the built in speaker. And even though the watch faces are limited, I really like the information available on some of the new faces for the series 4. Lastly, the battery on this thing is insane. I have watched reviews on the series 4 and the battery is described as lasting a day. They must be using it a ton, because I always have over 50% battery easily at the end of the day, usually 60-70%. About my only gripe is that the glass screen scratched super easily for me. I barely brushed against a laminate counter and have an ugly scratch along the top edge of the screen. I was depressed for most of that day. Oh, and this thing is really expensive. Thank you BestBuy 0% financing.

    I have been an Apple fan since 1991 and this watch is just an absolute dream. I did not purchase the previous models since I did not see the need to own one but this one is one that I had to have. The obvious change is the design, Apple says the watch has as been redesigned and reengineered from front to back. The new screen is 30 per cent larger thanks to the sizes getting a bump from 38mm and 42mm to 40mm and 44mm models. That new screen itself is a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO), which basically means you get a high-quality OLED display that chomps through less power. I have been getting approx 17+ hours a day out of the battery and this is excellent. Text is bigger, and much easier to read. The buttons are larger, so selection errors are less common. My only complaint is that when you use the stepping counter it does seem to kick in only after 15-20 steps. However, everything else about this watch is very nice and so easy to use. I like the touch screen and the maps fill the watch space when using Apple Maps. The magnetic charging is great and the supplied charger and the bigger Apple Charger work nicely. I really like this new design and new watch. Great job Apple!

    I was considering an upgrade from my Series 2 and then went to my local Best Buy to look at the Series 4. Immediately, I was impressed with the case re-design and the increased screen size. Playing with the watch in the store gave me a reasonable idea of how much the internals were improved, little did I know. I've now had it for almost a month and while I can say I really enjoyed my Series 2 right from the start, the Series 4 is leaps and bounds improved. The watch fits much more comfortably on the wrist due to the change in case dimensions. There is very minimal increase in the size of the case itself but the screen size is noticeable by comparison to previous versions. The new infographic faces are great but they are somewhat limited at this point. That will change. Did I mention this watch is FAST. Apple really hit a home run with Series 4 as it feels like they produced what the watch always should have been. If you're not sure, if you're on the fence, go look at one and be prepared to swipe your card!

    I love this thing! Don't know why I didn't buy an Apple Watch earlier but I'm finally there and I couldn't be happier. I like the activity features and achieving goals. It's not like being 'guilted' into performing my daily exercise, it's more like being motivated. And I love that I don't have to run to another room for my iPhone or dig it out of my pocket when I get a call, text or notification of some kind. It is also useful for monitoring my sleep pattern with a sleep app. But one of the coolest things is the ability to easily change bands. I've purchased a number of colorful watch bands to 'accessorize' and it takes just seconds to swap bands unlike with those old style springy post things that would go flying off across the room half the time whenever you had the misfortune of having to replace your Twist-o-flex.

    Best Apple Watch Yet

    I have owned the first generation aluminum Apple Watch, the Series 2 aluminum, and the series 2 Stainless Steel. This Series 4 aluminum is the best of all. The thinner profile is noticeable and much better looking. The speed is fantastic. I use my Apple Watch while working out at the gym. I use the Gymaholic app on the watch and play music from the watch to the Apple Airpods. With the series 2, this was a frustrating process with lots of waiting. I'd start the music app and wait. Select a playlist and wait, select shuffle and wait, etc etc. Now everything responds immediately and I can get to working out and not standing around poking at the watch. I prefer the stainless finish, but I don't like that LTE is required for the stainless model. I can't use that function with my company phone, so its just an additional $100 price increase without any benefit to me. I have also used Fitbit charges, Nike Fuelband, and the Jawbone wearable. None of them come close to the utility and ease of use of the Series 4 Apple Watch. If you are hesitant, don't be, You will love it.

    I love the new Apple Watch Series 4! One of my favorite features is that I can see my text messages, calls, or notifications while at work, where it is prohibited to use a cell phone. Battery life is pretty good, sometimes I have more than 60% left at the end of my day (turning the watch on at 8 AM). At first I thought the battery life wasn't that great because I'd be 2 hours into work, being 10AM and the watch would show 90%. So for every 2 hrs, 10% will be used for me and my options that I have turned on. Which would make sense of the 60% at the end of my 8 hr work day. Battery life will depend on your settings and that example above isn't perfect but a decent estimation for my lifestyle. Which apps you use, how many notifications you get, whether you used it for a call and the duration of that call, having the screen light up on movement/wrist raise, or by tapping it will determine how long your battery lasts. The watch charges within an hour, so you can continue to use this watch for your everyday needs. I also use this to remind me to drink my water everyday lol.

    Bought to upgrade my Wifes Series 3, wanted to get the larger watch face. So far she loves it, the watch face is noticeably larger especially when trying to tap things etc. Don’t get me wrong the 3 was great but this one is overall better. Had the cellular version but after paying almost 15.00 per month on AT&T and hardly ever taking advantage of the cellular feature since our phones are with us 99% of the time and you can do everything that the cellular feature does as long as your phone is connected, we opted to drop the cellular feature, sell the series 3 and upgrade to the 4 GPS version. Also loving the walkie talkie feature, which is also in the new watch iOS for older apple watches. We also love the safety features like fall or slip detection, notification if it detects irregular heartbeat, and the EKG function. Can’t wait for my Nike series 4 to show up in Oct.

    I'm new to Apple, after getting my first iPhone in Nov and falling in love I figured I might as well go head and grab a watch and iPad but I did not want to pay Apple prices. One night I dropped by BB and they had this watch open-box for a GREAT price. After thinking about for a min I purchased the watch and went home. I've been wearing it for about a month now and I love it. It took a while to figure it out but after doing some googling and just playing around with it I love it. I thought the 40 mm would be too big on my wrist but it looks great to me. The only blemish was on the bottom of the watch like near the heart rate sensor. I will say I have picked up a few hairline scratches since getting the watch so I really need to get a screen protector or case. Also I wasn't able to purchase Apple Care which was a bummer. I've overall very happy with the watch and price of the open-box item. Oh also the only thing that was missing in the box was the size small band but you get those on Amazon for cheap.

    In the past, I owned and used the Series 1 and 2. From my past experience using both of them, they weren’t super practical to me due to how slow they are and lack of practical functionality when it comes to the OS experience. Giving the Series 4 a shot, I can confidently say that the watch has improved to the points where it suits my needs. For myself, I’m not the biggest exercise junky, but definitely look over my phone for reminders, notifications, etc. The watch definitely delivers in that regard in a non intrusive and transparent way. Switching through apps has been smooth and navigating through options has been simplified even more. With the 44mm size screen, you can viably use the watch as your map navigator rather than constantly looking/listening to your phone. The series 4 is great for any iOS users that wants to enter the smartwatch game, but would not recommend upgrading their Series 3 watches.

    I had been using the Fitbit versa and although I like their competition and overall health way more.. I needed my smart watch to be much.. much more. This watch also introduced competitions... one on one.. but it’s a step in the right direction. I also had the Apple Watch 2 and the battery is almost lasting twice as long. Still need to plug it in every night... so their sleep tracking is pretty much out of the question (fitbits is way better). I supplemented with the sleep cycle app. It doesn’t alert you when you hit 10k steps but it uses rings that are also motivating. Standing for at least a minute or moving for 12 hours out of the day. Exercising for at least a 1/2 hour a day. And burning (for me) 600 cals per day. Pretty easy to close them daily. Overall very happy with my purchase because it works with my MacBook, Apple TV, iPhone, and airpods! Pretty much a no brainer! Got it from Best Buy also so I had no interest for a whole year. And with money back in certificates.

    I honestly didn’t think I was going to love this watch as much as I do. It’s encouraged me to move more, and the health tracking benefits are amazing. The fall detection and Heart monitoring abilities are so helpful. It’s great to be able to check text messages and other notifications without having to look at my phone, and being able to make phone calls from my wrist is a plus. Pokémon Go Players, this watch is extraordinarily helpful! Since they’ve introduced the Adventure Sync, the watch counts all of my steps, and that transfers over to the game, meaning more distance covered, candies and hatched eggs. Win! Overall it’s was a good purchase, I’ve encouraged my parents to get one, and I’ve had several other friends and family who have purchased one because they liked mine. The staff that handled the store pick up were also excellent. Great experience all around, would recommend!

    Not Bad for First Apple Watch

    So this is my first apple watch. I really like it but I'm not sure I'm feeling any more motivated that I was before I purchased it. I mean I like all the cool nifty health features but it's still just a watch for me at the moment. One of the features that I was drawn to when it was release was the ECG feature. When it is released I hope it will be as useful as I Imagined it would be when I heard about it. I don't have BIG wrists but they aren't small either, just a lil bit bony and I bought the 44mm size. It's comfortable, doesn't bother bother, doesn't feel awkward. I like it's nightstand feature a lot though and the fact that it has synced with every app on my Iphone 7s. I've bumped it several times, each time making me gasp but the face is untouched so far. I thought I was going to miss the standalone cellular feature but I opted to go for a watch without it and I haven't noticed a difference yet.

    Its apple everything they make is super awesome. I purchased the watch for my wife, it was her second one so she knew what she was getting. The old slogan “ Diamonds, that will shut her up.” Well, apple has adopted that perfectly. Birthdays, anniversaries and oh crap moments apple has stepped up and taken one for the team. I’d give them a round of applause if I could, but I guess I just have to settle doing it for them here. Oh yeah if you wonder if the watch really is waterproof and you don’t feel like running out and dropping a couple hundred dollars to test the theory, well my wife has for you. Yes it is waterproof. FYI if your in the apple development department, and are reading this, make something new other than an iPhone, Iwatch or IPad I feel a screw up coming on and I’m running out of products.

    This is a great watch! Yes, I looked at the Samsung and gave it a try. But, Android and Windows keeps pushing me back to Apple. I started out with the 40mm and brought it back in and exchanged it for the 44mm. Note for my fellow veterans out there. Apple now offers a Veterans discount, so make sure you look that up because BB will honor the price match. That said, the screen on the 44mm is worth the upgrade. The larger screen makes this watch great when working out or using it for work related applications. The speaker is amazing and people cannot tell that I am using the watch. The battery life is good and I can easily get 3-4 days from this device. The Walkie-talkie feature is rock solid and works well. Apple just needs to open this up for other platforms and it will be really useful. All in all, this was a great upgrade for me coming from a series 1 Apple watch.

    I was a Galaxy guy for the last 3 years, but I am happy that I made the switch to Apple. I went with the iPhone Xs Max and haven't been disappointed. The speed of the device is incredible along with the display. Been a little bit of a struggle getting used to functionality, but persistence pays off. Related to the watch specifically, it is a fun time. It is very useful if you are active at all. If your phone is on you, you can use it to take a phone call to not interrupt the music coming thru your actual phone. It is water resistant, not water proof. It will easily wick sweat away. The clock interfaces are beautiful and the Series 4 watch does not stutter at all. Yes, $400 plus tax is a lot of money for a watch, I get that. You have to look at what you are into as a consumer and I love tech. It enhances your apple experience quite a bit, I honestly am already looking forward to the Series 5.

    Pro: Faster processor, 16 GB memory, slimmer bezels, thinner package, more desirable rounded corners, new watch faces, more complications, walkie talkie feature, louder speakers, medical safety features such as heart rate high and low limits, fall detection, and EKG function (update to come). I'm coming from a Series 2 and loved it, but everything about Series 4 is worth the upgrade for me. I would definitely recommend it if you're on the fence about upgrading from a Series 1 or 2. Low: Although battery life of 18 hours is the same as the Series 3, I wish it was longer and that it had always-on time display option.
